SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) -Former NFL quarterback Josh Booty was subdued by sheriff's deputies with a Taser gun and ended up with a black eye Wednesday after being arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.
Booty, the older brother of Southern California quarterback John David Booty, was arrested by the California Highway Patrol after being pulled over on the 55 Freeway in Santa Ana, Orange County Sheriff's Lt. Hal Brotheim said.
During the booking process, the 32-year-old Booty - currently working as a television and radio sportscaster - became belligerent and deputies used the Taser, Brotheim said.
``After being Tased, he was fully compliant,'' Brotheim said.
Brotheim said Booty ``fell to the ground, struck his head on the table on the way to the ground and sustained a black eye.''
, Brotheim said.
In 2001, Booty was drafted with the 177th pick out of LSU by the Seattle Seahawks and later traded to the Cleveland Browns, spending three years with them as a backup. He signed a two-year contract with the Oakland Raiders last March, but was cut four months later.
Booty also played baseball for five years in the Florida Marlins' organization after he was the No. 5 overall pick in the 1994 draft. He played in 13 major league games from 1996-98 and hit .269 (7-for-26) with four RBIs.
